I got a dozen arrows cut today. I put all my new fob's on. I put my new Apache rest on last week. Looks like I'm ready to play! I'm going to try 3d for the first time this upcoming week. Wish me luck.

don't do it man! I went to a 3D course last week, first time ever. No competition or anything, just a walk through course for the heck of it... Now I can't wait to go back! I'm gonna have to figure in another $30 a paycheck now to feed my addiction!

$30 bucks a paycheck? Holy crap. My range is $5 a week. They hold all kinds of competitions there. It must be decent.

The club I go to (not a member) it's $12 which I think is reasonable for a good time. Didn't shoot as well as I would have liked. Still getting to know my Alien and they had some pretty tricky shots set up. Quite a few 40+ which threw me for a loop and where I dropped most of my points.

DP, don't fret too much over it. If a lot of shots were over 40 yards then you did well no matter what your score. I know I've been shooting 3D for a long time and I'm usually pretty good at judging yardage out to 35 yards. After that it can get pretty iffy. Most local shoots here have a seniors' division that sets a limit of 35 yards so that's within my comfort range. Still, I take some longer shots once in a while just to keep the brain working. Fortunately they're all fun shoots so I can leave my ego at home and just have fun. That's what the game is all about anyway. If it wasn't fun I wouldn't do it.

For sure! I was out with my Dad and it was his first time going to a 3D - I was just enjoying being out there with him. Some of the 40s are tricky to judge, I'm usually pretty solid judging up to 35 like you say because that is mostly what I shoot. No matter what, it's a good time.

Its a gun and archery range, $10 entry no time limits. Plus taxes and gas for 45 min one way rounds up to about $15 a trip. There is a FITA range, a flat range with targets from 10 yds to 80 yds, and two walk through 3D courses, one with 20 targets one with 28. The 3D targets range from 3yds all the way out 75, uphill, downhill, through trees and brush, and not very many of them are an even distance; most are odd ranges like 23 or 46 or 52 etc. A range finder here is a must, but its a nice setup.

The longer distances are definitely interesting, especially since I only have 5 pins set up to 60 yds.

Ok, now that you've further explained it sounds much more reasonable. With gas included I'm at about 10 bucks a trip.

Although its not good for the fob's it was pretty cool to see how they work during a pass through.
